Months of Inventory (M.O.I.) report for the Central Alberta market

central alberta real estate inventory

The local real estate months of inventory or (M.O.I.) rate could be the most important real estate data to impact your real estate buying and selling decisions… and it’s important to understand why.

!IMPORTANT READ!
Seller markets in Red Deer, Penhold, Blackfalds and Stettler for detached properties. The towns/cities with the highest m.o.i. are Lacombe, Innisfail and Ponoka. If I had to summarize the Central Alberta market I’d say “balanced.” In the municipalities experiencing seller market numbers, there hasn’t been a better time to sell this decade.

4 of the 8 communities tracked are now witnessing a “seller’s market.”

Low selling commission
Save selling! Save buying!

NOTE!
High inventory will affect prices
, however, on the other hand, if you’re a buyer you can take advantage of high inventory at lower prices. The right purchase approach with an astute Realtor® can get you a very lower purchase price.

To encourage normal growth we need months of inventory or M.O.I. rates below the 5-month range. Scroll down for this month’s inventory rates through Central Alberta.

When buying or selling property take into consideration the local inventory stats. It’s the most important real estate news especially if you’re planning to sell your home. When months of inventory levels are high prices stay flat or decrease. When inventory levels are low homes will sell faster and prices will increase.

Even with high inventory, homes still sell, but the price is key **list slightly too high and your property will sit indefinitely if home prices aren’t increasing. Allowing your home to sit ‘for sale’ for months will affect its value now and down the road.

www.HomeScope.ca is where all past Red Deer real estate news, information and stats are located for viewing. Recently however I’m having trouble with the host and access to the site for updates. I’ve had similar service problems over the last 24 months with HomeScope.ca’s current service host so I’ve started www.iOnRealEstate.ca to mirror and gradually replace HomeScope.ca. iOnRealEstate.ca will begin to carry the same important local real estate market news, information and statistics.
